Is there anything more perfectly NW than apple picking? Hilariously, our group was about a third native Washingtonians and two thirds New Englanders/former residents of the Northeast. Bless their hearts, those crazy imports were waxing on and on about the size of their trees and u-pick farms, etc., etc. To which I say, show me your 70% market share and then we can talk.
And let’s talk about the on-the-fly drive mix my carpool made en route. Obsessed. Been listening all weekend.
We picked apples at The Farm at Swan’s Trail. It’s an easy hour-ish drive from Seattle. The u-pick is on the small side but totally serviceable and the apples are delicious. And their corn maze opens next weekend!
